A broken refrigerator can be a big headache for the unfortunate owner of the appliance. Being rather complex appliances like that, refrigerators may experience a wide variety of issues. Of course, the most common problem is the inadequate cooling capacity of your appliance, however, there are many other issues, which can lead to this problem – and sometimes it may be not enough to repair your appliance. It is important to remember, that just like any other home appliances, refrigerators require proper cleaning and maintenance. However, even if your appliance broke down completely it doesn’t mean you should simply throw it away! Most of the time the refrigerator repair would not take too long – and would not be particularly expensive. Unlike washing machine or dishwashers, fridges are normally easy to disassemble, and even though proper diagnostics may take a while, the repair itself is normally pretty straightforward.
Common Refrigerator Issues
These are the most common refrigerator issues we encounter in Denver Appliance Repair.
Refrigerator or freezer is too warm
This issue is relatively common, however, it is also the one that may take quite a while to diagnose. Sometimes it may be enough to either clean your condenser coils from dust or rearranging food items inside the chamber, however, if the problem is serious enough it may be caused by a more serious issue with your appliance.
Fridge or the freezer is freezing over and won’t defrost
This problem can often be caused by a faulty control board or compressor, however, we would suggest that you call a technician for proper diagnostics instead of trying to repair the appliance on your own. Also, avoid removing the ice manually, since it may damage the piping on the back of your appliance.
The door gasket is cracked, damaged or needs to be replaced
A damaged door gasket means some cool air from your refrigerator is leaking outside. As a result, it will force the refrigerator to work more and will drastically increase the energy consumption.
Water dispenser is not dispensing water or leaking
The first thing that comes to the mind is that you might want to replace the water dispenser itself, however we would warn you against doing so. The problem can often lie in the bad water pipe connection, a faulty valve, etc.
Fridge has a Freon leak or needs Freon replaced
Replacing Freon can be a bit tricky – it requires special skills and equipment. However, we will gladly help you with this issue in Denver Appliance Repair!
Refrigerator won’t turn on
This problem can be encountered with nearly any appliance. It may be a result of a short, burnt fuse or damaged circuitry.
Fridge runs for too long and won’t turn off
Of course, there may be numerous reasons, which lead to this problem. Is your refrigerator actually managing to keep the temperature low? Or maybe the fridge is just working less efficiently now and it is trying to compensate by running overtime?
Other frequent problems include
The fridge is too noisy.
The light won’t turn on when the door is open.
